Inside Notting Hill (Mail on Sunday)


Sarah Anderson, co-author with Miranda Davies of Inside Notting Hill, has a particular place in the story of this London district. It was to her Travel Bookshop that Richard Curtis came for inspiration for his film Notting Hill, which went on to feature Hugh Grant as the owner of a bookshop visited by Julia Roberts. The book is for anyone keen to get beneath the skin of this fascinating place – almost every street seems to have its own story linked to a succession of famous writers, artists and performers. On your next visit to London, forget about the London Eye and wander the streets of Notting Hill for quite a different perspective on the capital.
